Anti-Capitalist Fashion Week – launches The Reading Room

The NewBridge Project will present a series of events as part of our the Anti-Capitalist Fashion Week launching our new space and national project The Reading Room 

Join us to expand on the environmental focus of exhibition Habit, Ability! by highlighting ways of working, thinking, and acting which challenge the current fashion industry within the dominant Capitalist system, with The Reading Room. We have curated a series of events focussing on a new book in The Reading Room’s collection – Tansy E Hoskins ‘Stitched Up – The Anti-Capitalist Book of Fashion’

The Reading Room

is a new collaborative project where people can read, learn, listen, and share ideas.

Through linking up with other spaces across the country, we’ve created libraries stocked with thought provoking books, where reading groups and opportunities to meet authors are being established, providing resources and activities that hope to catalyse creativity, collaboration and conversation.

The organisations involved share a common goal – to support and empower people within their communities. This project has been initiated in partnership with independent publisher Pluto Press, and the Left Book Club, and over time, each local hub will develop to reflect and serve the community within which it sits, making each space responsive and unique.

As well as physical library spaces, The Reading Room will open up forums to debate local issues that affect everyday lives. Taking the lead from our communities, these topics may include inequality, the environment, precarious employment, LGBTQ+ issues, structural racism and much more.
